Just in time for the 50th we have a new motorized turnout for the improved 1" service siding. With two treated water spigots and enough room for two full trains we will be able to keep the mainline clear for increased traffic during runs and the meet.
The 3/4" project is a is a complete rebuild of our 3/4 high-line for our guests at the 50th meet. When the ILS was founded the first track was the 3/4" which you can see in our history section. Our 3/4" uses 1/2" rail and is dual-gauged for both 3/4" and G operation. We are looking forward to being part of the renewed interest in these smaller scales which offer all the fun of live steam with a lower cost and a more manageable size.

What goes around comes around when it comes to 3/4" track at the ILS. The stringers are all in place and the track is being leveled and aligned Now the only question remaining is who gets the first run!!
